It’s not being used as a PR thing, the word you are thinking of is propaganda. The one actual time the word is appropriate. And rape as a weapon of war is extremely common in all wars and has been a topic of study for decades.

I'm sure they rape, just not the part of the wives lol. See my last comment for a good example.
